Innovation and Impact: Past Participants

Lucas Nikkanen


Lucas Nikkanen is a music producer, filmmaker, and sound designer majoring in Cinema Studies. His music has been featured in ads for Sony Alpha, the Esquire Network, and O’Neil Surf, and enjoys a following on Soundcloud under the name “Aten Rays.” He explores the themes of memory, dreams, and the dissolution of identity in his work, expressing them in the intersection between image and sound. He has created multiple installations and experimental films at Oberlin with an emphasis on soundscape and is working on an EP to be released this summer.
